Apple Rose Cake

Soft, simple and delicious, I made this cake quickly for my children yesterday. They really love coming home from school and find a nice homemade cake still warm from the oven.

Nothing beats apples: they are great in cakes!

  • Prep Time : 40 minutes
  • Cook Time : 1 hour minutes



Peel the apples, slice them thin and cook them for 10-15 minutes in a sauce pan with 4 tbsp of water and 2 tbsp of brown sugar. They need to soften up a little.

Whip the eggs with the caster sugar

Add the flour, the vanilla extract and the melted butter, stir all the ingredients well together and pour them into a greased round baking tin.

Roll the apple slices to make them look like roses and lay them over the mixture. Put some amaretti biscuits (optional) around the roses and sprinkle with brown sugar

Love the idea of rolling the apple slices into the shape of a rose. Plus to add the biscuits, it is just amazing. I will have to try this sometime, as I want to make those roses! Thanks for sharing, Hope that you have a Blessed weekend! Dottie 🙂
